'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Baptista Blubbing

Normally I wouldn`t have nibbled on this but Julio Baptista has come out with some crackers about living the vida England. Reminiscent of Ginola`s wife breaking out in tears when she first saw Newcastle, he`s come up with some prize 'Continental` quotes that make some lovely generalisations. Really. Anyway here`s the nuggets:

• "The weather over here is killing me. We get one day of sunshine for every 30 days of rain."

• "The Premiership is very hard. I enjoy making clever touches but the game is so fast I don't have time to think."

• "My girlfriend and my mother are frightened about not seeing the sun in England. They miss being in Madrid.'

• "The teams from the north of England are terrible. When we play them I have counted their centre-backs booting up to 30 long balls upfield per game.The moment you stop to think, someone has taken the ball off you and knocked you to the ground.

• 'Over here they value a corner kick more than a fancy flick. I am lucky to be with Arsenal, as they are a team that likes to play proper football.'

Oooohhh! Handbags for Julio…

Soft tart. Bet he wears gloves in September as well.

Typical Johnny Foreigner type. Take the money for a year and run home crying about a little bit of water.

LMAO at that one. For someone allegedly called the Beast he's about as hard as Julian Clary.
BaldEagle
He certainly has an eye for goal though

His four against Liverpool were good. Pity he'll not be repeating it.
